Per Howard Bryant at the Post:
I don't want to lose Lemar Marshall because he's the jack-of-all-trades in our linebacking unit who can back up London Fletcher (old) at ILB and on the Weak side either behind McIntosh or Briggs.
I don't want to lose Rocky McIntosh because I am ready to see him start and learn whether we were wise to trade 3 draft picks to select him. If the team is willing to part with McIntosh it will be an admission that they screwed the pooch on that trade. It would also suggest that the team doesn't know how to scout linebackers, a troubling fact given how it should inform our opinion of Briggs (since we want him).
I don't want to lose Kedric Golston because he's the only young player on our line who has played beyond his potential. I don't know how upgrading linebackers with Lance Briggs is supposed to help our anemic pass rush. I certainly don't know how upgrading linebackers while downgrading the line works towards that end, either.
If there is any good news from this it is that the Bears might price Briggs out of Washington. I view that as ideal, though it is somewhat frustrating to remain hopeful that another team saves your front office from a blunder. Also there's the scary possibility that the Redskins will relent and throw in some additional personnel to sweeten the deal. If it was a bad idea in the first place (my opinion) than it's a horrible idea per their potential counteroffer.
Here's an interesting theory about what the Bears will do:
